Husband has started grunting like a gorilla and it’s putting me off sex 0 169

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband has started making a weird grunting noise.

He doesn’t seem very aware that he is doing it and it definitely does not register with him that it is strange.

My husband has started grunting like a gorilla and it’s putting me off sex

He makes the low rumbling sounds at random times and it can be quite startling.

I am 37 and my husband is 39. We have been together for ten years.

In the last three weeks, he has started doing it during sex and it is putting me off.

The sound reminds me of a gorilla grunt.

We are due to go on holiday soon and I am terrified he is going to spend the entire flight making the noise at random people.

I am cringing at the thought of it. Please help.

DEIDRE SAYS: The late onset of a “tic” disorder such as Tourette’s is rare, as tic disorders are thought to be childhood syndromes.

So this is possibly the reactivation of a disorder from his childhood.
Tourette’s, for example, is one such disorder where people make involuntary sounds and movements.

Please encourage your husband to see his GP for more information and advice.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 259

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
